Changing Dreams (A Poem)

All the dreams I had before (aren’t)
That appealing anymore

The things I wished for, prayed for, hoped for
Worked for every day
They seem so selfish, shallow now
Just fade into the gray

I don’t mind if the crowds and masses
Never know my name
Simplicity is beauty (there’s no)
Need to hunt down fame

And all those high achievers (brought their)
A-Game to the fight
The big names I admired aren’t so
Flawless in the light

Dreams in flux and shifting
There’s so much more than me
Ambition’s overrated
More love and family
